For Beyond Blue

Anxiety, depression and suicide have touched the lives of many if not all of my friends and family. I chose Beyond Blue as my charity to support because the work they do is important, they save lives and they have helped people very close to me in my life. Everyone experiences some sort of depression or anxiety in their life even if it is only for a brief time. For some it is fleeting, coming with a tragedy and for others it is a constant companion in life. It does not mean these people are lesser or damaged. If anything it makes these people more empathetic and able to help others when they recognise the signs in some one else. Beyond Blue is here for everyone in Australia – at work, home, school, online and in communities across the country. I hope to not only spread awareness, but also to remove the stigma that surrounds depression and anxiety. So, please support me now in my participation at Blackmores Sydney Running Festival to help all Australians achieve their best possible mental health.

Thank you to everyone who has donated to Beyond Blue so far! I have reached my first goal but I would love to go even further, so if you haven’t donated please do, every bit counts!
